Have you checked out the Parents and the High Cost of Child Care 2014 Report yet?

Eleven million children younger than age five are in some form of child care in the United States. The Parents and the High Cost of Child Care: 2014 report summarizes the cost of child care across the country and represents the eighth year that Child Care Aware of America has published this data. Unfortunately, the picture for families has not improved in this time and child care remains one of the most significant expanses in a family budget. Child care often exceeds the cost of housing, college tuition, transportation or food. Unlike all other areas of education, including colleges and universities, families pay the majority of early education costs for young children. Because these costs come when parents are at the beginning of their careers, these significant expenses come at a time when families can least afford them.
